A note from the TD:

Hangzhou is quite a new spot on the China Ultimate map. The Hangzhou Phoenix Ultimate Club (HPU) only began in the year 2009. During our 3 years of development we have learnt a lot from players all round China. Now itʼs time for us to give something back.

Today, we officially announce that the inaugural Hangzhou Hat Tourney will be held on 10th-11th Dec.

In order to get as many spectators as possible and spread Ultimate to College students, we have chosen the Xiasha university district as the competition site. Your attendance will give tremendous support to the development of Ultimate in Hangzhou, and thereby in China.

Though the weather may be little bit chilly during the competition, with our warm hearts and passion for Ultimate, we will light a fire in Hangzhou this winter.
